I think the brewery gets a lot of shit because Boulevard was one of its most popular beers for so long, and if you've ever had an actual wheat beer, Boulevard is...lacking. (However if, like college me, you had never had an actual wheat beer, then Boulevard is pretty delicious.) My brother recently told me that… » 8/27/14 2:11pm Today 2:11pm

Actually in some planes, it's extremely difficult to turn around and ask anyone anything. I was on a Southwest flight two days ago, and someone was kicking my seat. In order to see who was kicking the back of my seat, I would have had to take of my seatbelt and turn around with my knees on the seat in order to even… » 8/27/14 1:54pm Today 1:54pm

I think the major reason they have family boarding is so that families can find seats together. On Southwest flights (which I take quite a bit), people fill up the window/aisle seats really fast, and often there aren't two or three seats together, let alone 5, for families to sit together. And at the end of the day,… » 8/26/14 12:42pm Yesterday 12:42pm

I've been trying a lot of black IPAs lately, having recently discovered that I really like them (such a nice combination of flavors!). Lagunitas NightTime is my favorite so far, but I'll have to check out Stone's offering. Thanks for the assist! » 8/26/14 12:39pm Yesterday 12:39pm

I posted on FB last night that I genuinely think they could make the Emmys 1000x more watchable if they limited how many of the major categories each show could win (say, 2) and made a rule that shows couldn't win Best X more than 2 years in a row. I know that's not "fair", but it would make the show infinitely more… » 8/26/14 11:57am Yesterday 11:57am

I don't know if people are doing a very good job explaining it by saying "It's in the book." It is in the book, but the nakedness in this particular sequence is extremely, extremely important. In the context of the scene, it is absolutely vital that she be naked, otherwise one of the defining moments in Cersei's… » 8/25/14 3:02pm Monday 3:02pm

This day was about 1300 calories (less for the Inspector since the snack at the end wasn't eaten). If you're doing even a moderate amount of physical activity, that's on the low side of how many calories you should be ingesting (speaking generally, of course, not for each individual person). For a plan to lose… » 8/25/14 11:30am Monday 11:30am

Personally, I think this is one of the worst seasons I've seen of this show. Which isn't to say that it's bad, necessarily, but that the dancers all seem kind of bland and uninspiring. Not a single contestant has knocked my socks off this season. » 8/21/14 2:07pm 8/21/14 2:07pm

I was actually just discussing this with someone on Groupthink the other day. I read the Chalion books when I was like 21, and I think maybe I was just too young to appreciate them at the time. I'm going to give Curse another try when I go home for Thanksgiving and can dig it out of my book bin. » 8/21/14 10:33am 8/21/14 10:33am

I am currently eating grilled chicken on a pita with zucchini and lemon yogurt sauce. This all sounds delicious until I tell you that I think the cafeteria used the wrong yogurt for the sauce, because it tastes super sweet, like they used vanilla instead of plain. I'm starving, so I'm eating it anyway, but I am… » 8/21/14 1:32pm 8/21/14 1:32pm

I'm sorry to anyone who had actually had this happen, but the whole "I didn't eat sweets for X amount of time, and now sweets taste gross!" idea is one I will never, ever buy. I ate a very low sugar diet for over a year, and when I did eat sugar, it tasted like fucking heaven. If it didn't happen for me, IT DOESN'T… » 8/21/14 9:59am 8/21/14 9:59am

I feel like Deadspin's article on fruits disproves the men don't love the smell of lemons. Because I don't know how lemon ended up at #5 anyway, but it makes even less sense if men aren't supposed to like it, because the vast majority of voters were men. Thanks for proving science wrong, Deadspin. » 8/20/14 1:14pm 8/20/14 1:14pm
